A WALLYFORD man who caused a disturbance on two occasions at a Post Office in Tranent has been fined.

James Barclay shouted, swore and uttered menacing remarks to counter staff at the Post Office on the town’s High Street in June last year.

Barclay also attended at the same Post Office a few days later and behaved in a threatening or abusive manner and refused to leave the premises when asked to do so by concerned staff.

The 37-year-old, of St Clement’s Crescent, pleaded guilty to the two offences when he appeared in the dock at Edinburgh Sheriff Court last Tuesday.

Sheriff John Cook decided to mark the offences by issuing Barclay with a £180 fine.

Barclay pleaded guilty to behaving in a threatening or abusive manner at the Post Office on Tranent High Street on June 29 and July 2 last year.
